TOTALLY TIGERS – A DIFFERENT KIND OF CAT
With all the baseball blogs out there, why another one? What makes us unique? Well, we feel there’s a need to bring more to the table than just scores, standings and trades. We want to pose questions that will make readers think.
A Different Perspective
Local writers are limited by editors and access. National writers don’t have the time to dig below the basics. And how many blogs offer the balance between male and female points of view? We’ll cover topics in more detail and touch on subjects that might earn reporters swirlies by management and players alike. This is what happens when we’re given keyboards and high-speed internet.
Not the Same Old Stuff
Take a writer, Kurt, who literally grew up in Tiger Stadium and pair him with another writer, Holly, who analyzes trends, patterns, body language, behavior and communication for a living – and has a serious sense of style, btw – and you’ll read some unique perspectives. It could be the joining of the modern day Odd Couple. But being “family-friendly”, we may not be able to tell you about certain players’ choice gestures or phrases.
The Game Within the Game
If you’re a baseball fan, you know what this means. It can cover a wide range of topics. Who’s warming up in the bullpen? Why are they warming up in the bullpen? Do we want anyone warming up in the bullpen? Please don’t bring HIM in from the bullpen! Yeah, you know the drill.
Let Us Entertain You
If Miggy can yuck it up during games, why can’t we? Especially after those games we wish to forget because, as we all know, “there is no crying in baseball!” OK, well Kurt may cry occasionally, but you can “ease his pain” by paying Tiger Stadium proper respect. If you don’t, we’ll have to hear his diatribe once again on the phrase, “old Tiger Stadium” … as if there was a new one.
This Is Your Blog
Ever wish you could tell baseball writers what topics they should address? Consider our blog to be the written equivalent of your fantasy baseball team, where you can determine what we write about. Email us your thoughts. An occasional nice comment or two wouldn’t hurt either.
Your Daily Baseball Fix
Consider Totally Tigers that cruller to go with your morning coffee. We will try to publish every day except Christmas (come on, it’s Christmas!) and New Year’s Day, because Kurt won’t miss a bowl game and Holly won’t miss a sale at Neiman’s.
